OctoPi-Zero Part 1

The Hardware

I decided to build my very own OctoPi Server. With that said nothing in my life is simple. I wanted all the features I could get, while using a Pi Zero.

Here is a rundown of the parts.

1 - Pi Zero $5.50
2 - USB Hub with Ethernet $3.66
3 - Wi-Fi USB dongle $2.56
4 - HDMI Converter $1.52 (bought a 5 pack)
5 - Micro SD card 16G $5.50
6 - Generic relay board $1.26
7 - DC-DC Buck converter $0.99
8 - Kodak Camera $7.95

The Contest...

While not really a contest. I wanted to give back to my viewing audience. All you have to do is hopefully subscribe to my channel and comment on my video with something funny and witty. I will read every comment and whichever one sticks to my mind more is the one that will win the whole thing. I hope to send out a finished product with instructions on how to wire it in and configure it for just about any printer out there.

Here is my video on the subject.
